Welcome! My name is Treesong and I'm a fiction author from Southern Illinois. My work spans a wide range of genres: climate fiction, superhero fiction, science fiction, and beyond! I've published a novel called Change, a fiction-blog-turned-novel called Goodbye Miami (now available as an ebook), and a short story collection called Strange Beginnings.

I've been a fiction writer ever since I wrote my first Danny Dunn fanfics in middle school. When I went to college, I got involved in community activism and spent about a decade neglecting my writing career. For the past few years, though, I've been creating a growing body of work that combines my interests in speculative fiction (sci-fi, fantasy, superheroes, etc.) with my concerns for environmental and social justice (especially global warming).

Your support as a patron will help me to create more content and better content. The more support I get, the more time I'll spend on my writing. This will improve both the quantity and quality of my writing. It will also encourage me to continue and expand my work as a "Real Life Superhero" -- serving my community and region through various volunteer efforts with an emphasis on climate justice.

I'm also looking forward to receiving more direct feedback from my patrons about what you appreciate in my writing and what you're looking for in future works! I already get some feedback like this from personal discussion and social networking, but sharing my work through Patreon will expand and deepen that conversation.

Thank you for your support! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. I always enjoy talking with my readers and am especially looking forward to talking with my patrons.

Goals
$11 of $25 per month
I'm an avid reader. I generally read at least a few books each month. However, I don't usually take the time to write a detailed review. When I reach this goal, I'll write a new book review each month. The books reviewed will relate to my interests as an author: climate fiction, superhero fiction, science fiction, etc. Patrons who pledge $5 or higher can suggest books for me to review. Obviously, if I start getting dozens of requests each month, I may not review them all. But I'll do my best.
